House beers made on the premises are the draw at the Bottlehouse, a big open room with picnic-style tables and a ski lodge vibe. Its list of meads — a fermented honey beverage — is speciality, something you won’t find in every area bar. The Bottlehouse also has a large choice of Scotches and whiskeys, cocktails, and even absinthe. The menu features burgers, waffles, and pierogis, but you can also bring your own food — they’re easy. Hanging out, meeting up with friends, even bringing the kids, is encouraged here. The room also features a handful of vintage video games and a small stage where you might happen upon a singer-songwriter or a jazz combo.
